User Review

Going against the consensus, but I like this film!

Rating: 6/10

Whether it's Sharon Stone, or the obvious truth about my voyeuristic
tendencies, I like this movie. Sharon has seldom been more alluring and
Baldwin's character, with his eerily magnificent toys, lives his life
observing others. A movie for the CNN generation I'd contend.
